governor romney. the president has hit the ground running. he's in ohio this afternoon after holding a post-debate rally in florida a couple of hours ago. a rally in which the president again dished out what he referred to as medical advice to governor romney. >> last night he said he always supported taking out osama bin laden, but in 2007 he said it wasn't worth moving heaven and earth to catch one man. we've come up with a name for this condition. it's called romnesia. we had a severe outbreak last night. it was at least stage 3 romnesia. >> and governor romney left florida late this morning heading to battleground out west. he'll be rallying with paul ryan in nevada within the next hour. let me bring in today's "news nation" panel. margie o'meara, mike conde, and and jonathan, communications director for american cross roads. michael, i'll start off with you because i enjoy the fact you talk to folks around the country and get their reaction to big nights like the debate. we saw this president the at this rally a couple hours ago hitting the romnesia line again. this time

in romney's favor. adding to the fodder, the headline of the article, "did obama just throw the entire election away?" sullivan writes, quote, i'm trying to see a silver lynning but whether a president sem-immoates on live tv and a record number of people watch, it's hard to see how they recover. questions about the future of the obama candidacy coming as new reports emerge on an all-out rebellion inside the romney campaign led by ann romney and their son, tagg. politico says the romney family staged an intervention and pushed the recent shift to the center. politico writing the family rebellion long little, despite mitt romney's initial reluctance to change reached a climax in september. joining me now to make sense of all the new polls out there, mark murray. so mark, at 1:05 eastern time we got a new gallup tracking out. before we get into that, it seems one poll today that dominated the conversation is the pugh poll, but within the last hour there was a new reuters poll that came as well. >> we reached a very volatile part of the presidential contest right now coming right after th
romney needs a great october. our first read team makes this point. take a listen, quote -- >> so, who has the advantage? let's look at our debate scorecard. there will be six segments focusing on domestic policy, our chuck todd reports that there are no time limits. a format that neither of the candidates have experienced. president obama's last debate was against senator john mccain in the fall of 2008. while governor romney has had nearly two dozen debates during that gop primary. the obama campaign says the president's strategy is focused on shorter, crisper answers. the romney strategy, as reported in "the new york times" has the governor memorizing a series of zingers to try to hit the president with. let's bring in our "news nation" political panel for this monday. democratic strategist chris, national radio host michael, and also an msnbc contributor, and villa skype as you can tell from our shot there, steve, conservative radio show host. you have the visual disadvantage because you're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposi
says was on open forum, this was just last year, 2011. ryan's remarks are now being compared to romney's 47% comment. >> the good news is survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> and republicans are seizing on what vice president joe biden said at a campaign event in north carolina. that set off another war of words. >> how they can justify raiding taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been "buried." we agree. >> let's bring in the news nation political panel, associate editor and columnist for the "washington post" and msnbc analyst eugene robinson, abby stoddard, columnist for the hill, michael spir mitt romney is con nish, talk show host and chip saltzman, strategist. i would like to start off with you, is it fair to compare the two tape you the president's tape the conservatives were talking about since l
of breaking what seems to be governor romney's momentum. >> by the way, we want our sons to thrive in math and science and engineers, but we also want our daughters to thrive in those fields, too. we don't have to order up binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women who can learn and excel in these fields right now. and when these young women graduate, i want them to receive equal pay for equal work. >> also today a group of women who served under governor romney during his time as the governor of massachusetts, they're now on a bus tour through iowa talking up his positions on women's issues. on "the view" today ann romney was pressed about whether her husband believes access to contraception and abortion is an economic issue. here's how she responded. >> you know, again, i would love it if you'd get my husband on the couch, joy, and you can go through that. you go down with that all you want. what i know is what i can tell you and what i can reflect about my husband and who he is as a person. >> governor romney was invited on "the view," and he said it didn't fit p in his sch
issues. on "the view" today ann romney was pressed about whether her husband believes access to contraception and abortion is an economic issue. here's how she responded. >> you know, again, i would love it if you'd get my husband on the couch, joy, and you can go through that. you go down with that all you want. what i know is what i can tell you and what i can reflect about my husband and who he is as a person. >> governor romney was invited on "the view," and he said it didn't fit p in his schedule. here's keith boykin and cnbc ann cornblut. for the first time in new york city, a nationally syndicated radio show host conservative steve diese. we said governor romney's momentum, but let me clarify this poll likely women voters. in virginia the president leads 54/42, ohio 54/42, florida, 54/41. is the president discussing these issues related to women's health because he sees governor romney having momentum or that's an achilles heel for governor romney? >> i think it's an achilles heel for romney. they focused on it, and they have a strong record on women's issues. governor
the footing in a hold nothing back 90-minute slugfest with governor romney. president obama was in iowa in the last hour and talked about his improved performance. >> as many of you know, we had our second debate last night. you know, i'm still trying to figure out, you know, how to get the hang of this thing, debating. but we're working on it. you know? we'll keep on improving as time goes on. i've got one left. >> within left. meanwhile, governor romney in virginia, battleground state, where in the last hour accused the president of leaving questions unanswered last night. >> i love the debates. you know, these things are great. and i think it's interesting that the president still doesn't have an agenda for a second term. don't you think that it's time for him to finally put together a vision of what he'd do in the next four years if he's elected? he's got to come up with that over this weekend. there's only one debate left on monday. >> both candidates and their wing men chris crossing critical battleground states today. that's a look at the map and bring in today's news nation pane
. the romney campaign thinks they have a better standing in iowa which our polls suggest which could complicate that midwest firewall for president obama. 18 days ago, the nail-biter is just right. >> what about new hampshire? >> in new hampshire i think it's also going to be a really close race. you look at almost all of the battlegrounds, richard, that are out there right now, and i think we'll talk about a very, very late election night. we were just breaking down the 269-269 electoral vote college tie a couple of days ago. we all need to be prepared for something that's going to take us into november 7th, maybe even beyond. >> that would be a long night for you, my friend. what's behind the discrepancy with the numbers we've seen so far in the polls, though? >> well, the one thing -- you look at our nbc/"wall street journal"/maris poll of iowa, we show 34% of likely voters say they've already voted, and president obama is winning by a very wide margin. when you look at the voting totals into the iowa secretary of state's office, about 20% have actually voted, although the outstanding absent
of whom are male, should be making health care decisions for women. >> and mitt romney is campaigning all day in ohio hitting cincinnati this morning and columbus in the next hour. >> our campaign is about big things, because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. we recognize this is a year with a big choice, and the americans want to see big changes and i'm going to bring it to this country. >> and ohio is exactly where the big number worth watching today is focused. "time" magazine has the president up by five points in the buckeye state. when you look at women voters in ohio, president obama is up by 19 points. in early voting president obama has a 2-1 advantage over governor romney in early voting. msnbc's joe scarborough says the new numbers scream advantage obama. >> if you were mitt romney running against barack obama's get out the vote machine, i would say five points looks more like a mountain than a molehill. >> there's at least one poll from the ap that indicates the gop is closing the gap with women. the obama campaign is dismissing in latest number. let's br
the gallup numbers are, it gives romney a six-point lead. how do these two come together? >> richard, i think the polling is all over the place right now. i think that signals a very tight and competitive race, and sometimes when you actually see such a really close race that we're all expecting for november 6th, you're going to have polls in different directions. our polls actually suggest that president obama seems to have a firewall in those midwest states, and if he wins iowa, wisconsin and ohio, he surpasses 270 electoral votes. the romney campaign thinks they have a better standing in iowa which our polls suggest which could complicate that midwest firewall for president obama. 18 days ago, the nail-biter is just right. >> what about new hampshire? >> in new hampshire i think it's also going to be a really close race. you look at almost all of the battlegrounds, richard, that are out there right now, and i think we'll talk about a very, very late election night. we were just breaking down the 269-269 electoral vote college tie a couple of days ago. we all need to be prepared for somethi
of the night, the 47% came up and michael steele was on earlier saying that was an error on romney's part to go in and give the president this big moment. let's play what went down, the very last moment of the debate. >> i care about 100% of the american people. >> when he said behind closed doors that 47% of the country considered themselves victims, who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about. >> so you gene, i help hashtagging duh, duh, duh. that was the last impression and very different than last two weeks ago. >> i don't know why romney went there. i can understand him coming in to the debate figuring that the 47% thing would be raised and therefore he would be prepared to answer it as he's answered it in the nondebate setting. but to bring it up himself at the end where he doesn't get to respond, he opened the door and so president obama went right through it. >> michael, what if the president had forgotten? 47% slipped the mind. guess who was there to remind him. mitt romney. i think oprah calls it the a-ha moments. >> i think what you are saying is what if
people, the choice in this election. >> for governor romney it's an opportunity to try to keep his momentum going, and to decimate the president's small firewall in key battleground states that could decide this election. joining me from washington is mark murray. mark, you have a lot of democrats cheering the fact they see a slight edge in the swing states despite the debate and other issues as well, and it is a slight firewall as we refer to it. >> tamron, it is still nail-biting time, however. there are two new national polls that came out today. first a "washington post"/abc news poll that had president obama up 49% to 46% over mitt romney among likely voters. there was a george washington poll that had closer, 49% for president obama and 48% for mitt romney among likely voters. that's the situation into the second presidential debate, the town hall format in hofstra in new york. >> the daily gallup tracking poll shows likely voter, obama 48% and romney 46%. i think it was friday, mark, you and i were talking about or thursday the numbers and polling. for analysts like yourself
romney arrived in new york earlier this morning. the governor reportedly spent much of his flight talking with ohio senator rob portman. portman, of course, is playing the role of president obama and governor romney's practice sessions. up tonight's town hall style debate at hofstra university poses unique challenges for president obama and governor romney. both must exchange and confront each other while at the same time showing more concern for voters. the first read team notes president obama must show he's a fighter and explain his vision for a second term. mitt romney needs to show he can connect with americans. >> you're going to see an exceptionally strong debate performance tonight from the president. >> you walk in front of the jury at closing argument, and you don't have a few good facts on your side, you're going to have perry mason at your lawyer or you're losing the case. >> your one question for the president? >> why would the last four years be better? >> we're moving, man, come on. >> the setting is familiar to president obama. he sparred in the same location with john mcc
of change may be shifting around governor romney, who struck a new tone on immigration during an interview with "the denver post" last night. romney told "the denver post," quote, the people who have received the special visa that the president put in place, which is aa two-year visa, should expect the visa would continue to be valid. i'm not going to take something they purchased. this is what governor romney said in june the day after the president issued the executive order. >> i think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution, because an executive order is a short-term matter. it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. >> not reversed if he becomes president. nbc's first read calls it a, quote, tale of two mitts, saying on the one hand you have romney saying in recent interviews he won't revoke the executive action on young, illegal immigrants. that he's the grandfather of obama care, and these elm pathetic because he got all massachusetts residents health insurance. on the other hand, one of us saw first hand all the conservati
describes the bout governor romney got. a brand new round of nbc news polls in ohio show the president was up by eight points, he is up by six. in florida the president has held steady. still up by one point in that key state. we know what florida means and in virginia where the president had a two point lead and he now leads by one. now to tonight's debate in danville. l look at the headline from lexington's kentucky herald. in vp debate, gop looks to boost momentum, dems want to steady the ship. advisors are saying biden and ryan will be aggressive tonight. here's the bp scoreboard going on. according to the latest pew poll, 40% of those surveyed believe congressman ryan will outdebade the vice president. only 34% believe biden will win this thing. ryan also has the upper hand when it comes to popularity. the congressman with a 44% favorable rating compared to the vice president's 51% unfavorable score. both have done a walk through of the room today and joining me now if you have a guy in your ring, i guess it is chris matthews, host of msnbc's hard ball. i pause for t
>>> hi, everyone i'm tamara hall. governor mitt romney's latest description of himself with 11 days left in this campaign, he's now the change agent. in the last hour governor romney gave what his campaign referred to as a major economic speech. the backdrop of the speech, a construction company in ames, iowa. romney for the second time in as many days attempted to paint himself as the change needed to face america's big challenges. >> what this requires is change. change from the course of the last four years. it requires that we put aside the small and the petty and demand the scale of change we deserve. we need real change. big change. >> in that excerpt alone one, two, three, four, five references to the word change and romney's new selling points as being the cane of change was the highlight of a speech he gave last night in ohio where he trails president obama in recent polls. >> given the big challenges we have and the big election we have it's time for a big change. paul and i represent a big change for america. we recognize this is a year with a big choice and the americans
romney, around noon eastern time today, the romney campaign announced it is canceled all planned events tomorrow in wisconsin and florida out of what it calls, quote, sensitivity for the millions of americans in the storm's path. the governor did campaign in ohio this morning and will hold a rally in iowa later today. >> we have faced these kind of challenges before, and as we have, it's interesting to see how americans come together. this looks like another time when we need to come together, all across the country, even here in ohio and make sure that we give of our support to the people who need it. >> an emergency declarations have been signed in eight states along the east coast. new york city meantime now bracing for the worst of the storm. nbc meteorologist bill karins is tracking it all for us. he joins me live from lower manhattan. bill, right now two major tunnels close later today. the holland tunnel that connects new york and new jersey, mandatory evacuations in order for lower manhattan people outside of the new york area. that is where the world trade center is located, wa
and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper with governor christie. it was interesting. it was just governor christie. no other entourage greeting the presi
and governor romney said just a short time ago reacting to the jobs reports. let me play those first, both of them. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. it's come down nonetheless. the reason it came down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> so john harwood, before we talk about this back and forth, i want to talk about the psychological impact of the rate falling below 8% today. >> it's positive for obama and say that the rate is where it was when i took office. i don't think we should be under any illusions. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate, weak economy. it is a talking point for the administration, and it will get a lot of media attention. it doesn't change the underlying economic reality facing americans, which is not good. >> the labor
romney also canceled rallying today, but he did attend an event in ohio. his campaign describes it as a storm relief event. >> i've had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas, and they've talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people aat dayton got up this morning and went to the grocery store and purchased things these families will need. i appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response to the storm outstanding, governor chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now peo

[ laughter ] >> for ryan, the larger mission at least at the first ten-minute mark of the debate was to avoid being steamrolled while defending the controversial stances from governor romney. >> you weren't asked basically why i'm pro life. it's not simply because of my catholic faith. that's a factor of course. it's because of reason and science. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. >> i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians and muslims and jews. i refuse to impose that on others unlike my friend here, the congressman. >> the vice president dominated the night, handing out smiles and smackdowns. just take a look at the headlines, this one from the huffington post. they call it being bidened. from "the new york post," smirky biden upstages his boss. let's bring in today's political panel, michael smerconish, talk show host -- that
